Marital Agreements

While it may be difficult to have frank conversations about the future with your fiancé or spouse, it could save you time, money, and emotional anguish in the long run. An attorney could help you negotiate prenuptial agreements, postnuptial agreements or separation agreements.

Marital Agreements

While it may be difficult to have frank conversations about the future with your fiancé or spouse, it could save you time, money, and emotional anguish in the long run. An attorney could help you negotiate prenuptial agreements, postnuptial agreements or separation agreements.

Pre-Marital Agreements (Prenup)

A perception exists that a prenup means….you do not believe your marriage will last. This could not be farther from the truth; Today, couples from all walks of life see the value in having a premarital agreement. These contracts can spell out which property each partner wants to preserve for themselves and not share as marital property. The premarital agreement could also address issues like how you plan to handle your joint finances while married and how you will handle property division and alimony if your marriage does end.

Post-Marital Agreements (Postnup)

If you and your spouse are having problems but are not ready to end your marriage, a postnuptial or post-marriage agreement might be the best solution. Like prenups, ‘postnups’ address what happens to property, debts and spousal support should your marriage head for divorce.  They can also address finances during the marriage.


Many people believe that a divorce means a bitter court battle, but this does not have to be the case. Many divorces proceed relatively peacefully, and almost all divorcing couples can avoid a trial. A family law practitioner from our firm could negotiate with your spouse’s attorney to resolve many issues. In other cases, mediation could be the best way for you and your spouse to settle your differences.

When you and your spouse settle all major issues before filing for divorce or while the matter is pending, the judge will usually accept your agreements, and you can avoid a trial. A negotiated settlement is always the best result because it allows you to have control over the final agreement rather than leave private issues to a judge’s discretion. If you have children, negotiated divorces are much less stressful for them.

Issues Regarding Children

Marital discord, separation, and divorce can profoundly impact children. The law attempts to mitigate disruption to the children’s lives by requiring judges to apply the best interests of the child standard to any decision directly affecting a child.

When making a custody or support determination they include, in part, the:

  • Parents’ wishes
  • Children’s relationships with siblings, extended family members, and other members of each parent’s household
  • Parent’s relationship with each child and their ability and willingness to parent
  • Parent’s ability to support and nurture the other parent’s relationships with the children
  • Mental and physical health of each of the parties, including the children Courts also may consider the child’s wishes when making these decisions.

I fully and without hesitation recommend Stephanie, Sarah, and the whole team to anyone needing a family law firm. They are meticulous, diligent, hard-working, and compassionate. They take time to understand the details of each case and situation, striving for the best outcomes for their clients. Jones Family Law took the time to explain and talk through all choices and options so I could do what was best for my family in both the immediate and long term. During a very difficult time in my life, I knew I had sound and competent representation from people who truly care about the work they do.


I was refereed to Sarah Wittrock by a friend who is an attorney, and I couldn’t be happier with the end result. I felt as if she and her team always did their due diligence with keeping me in the loop and up to date with any changes. Going through a divorce is a difficult enough without having to deal with all of the legal headache. Hiring Sarah was the best money that I have spent this year, and should anything come up in the future, I know who I can call. Great working with the Jones Family Law Group, LLC!!!


I am very grateful for the legal services and results I received from

Jones Family Law in my divorce case. Stephanie Jones is an outstanding, hard working, professional, and trustworthy attorney who I cannot say enough about. She has come through for me and my children during a very difficult time. Stephanie promised to stick with me through thick and thin and held true to that promise even in the midst of a chaotic and complicated case and trial. Kate Rossi also worked very hard representing me extraordinarily during this time and Megan Leesman, is a diligent and supportive paralegal who is great at what she does. They all work great together and made me feel as though I had an entire team in my corner fighting for us.

Anyone with a complicated family law matter would be blessed to have Jones Family Law on their side.


Sarah Wittrock is an exceptional family collaborative lawyer. She is easy to talk to and makes you feel comfortable in uncomfortable family law. I have used Sarah for 5 plus years.


Sarah was amazing. Made a very difficult time much easier, and made me feel like our interactions were the most important thing she was doing that day.
